This paper outlines the methodologies that can be used to perform an intelligent analysis of diabetic patients' data, realized in a distributed management context. We present a decision-support system architecture based on two modules, a Patient Unit and a Medical Unit, connected by telecommunication services. We stress the necessity to resort to temporal(More)
We describe the design and implementation of a distributed computer-based system for the management of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The goal of the system is to support the normal activities of the physicians and patients involved in the care of diabetes by providing them with a set of automated services ranging from data collection and transmission(More)
This paper describes a telemedicine system for diabetic patients management, presenting its architecture, the technical solutions adopted and the methodologies on which it is based. The system, designed to provide decision support in a distributed environment, is composed of two modules, a Patient Unit and a Medical Unit, connected by telecommunication(More)

We introduce a novel technique for summarizing a short video to a single image, by augmenting the last frame of the video with comic-like lines behind moving objects (speedlines), with the goal of conveying their motion. Compared to existing literature, our approach is novel as we do not attempt to track moving objects nor to attain any high-level(More)

We describe a distributed architecture for medical informatics applications, based on the World-Wide Web (WWW) environment. After discussing previous experiences in the application of the WWW for medical purposes, we outline the features of a Common Lisp HTTP server designed to provide access to medical informatics applications using a standard Web browser.(More)
